How was last week? I read a lot, I have enjoyed most of the books and I am so happy about it. I have also finished crocheting another doily. Sadly, I also realized that I am so far behind my goal of 100 books this year and I have no idea how to catch up.
One of the books I have finished is “Hot Nights in Morocco” by Catherine Wiltcher. I have two quotes and one more that will be included in the review (also up on my blog today).
This was one of the many funny lines in this book. I loved it to the core and it made me feel good. All 400 pages! I don’t quite believe that swearing is a sign of intelligence. There should be other ways one can express the wits. But I do agree that somehow all the nerves need to come out and maybe a bad word helps. I am not encouraging this, but I sometimes recur to less… appropriate collocations. So, moving on:
Both characters in this book have baggage and are not ready to give up their walls. But in the process of falling in love, they somehow hut each other. Jake has a stronger personality and his words hurt, same as his actions. Charlie is overwhelmed by the new world she has discovered, but she is quickly wrapped up in the famous producer. So they both end up doing more damage then intended.
This was a great story and I do invite you to check my review and learn more about this book. Also, I would really want to know what are your plans for the week, so leave your comments below and let’s chat 😊
New week, new quote, new books to read, many new things! But enough about me, how are you guys? Any interesting plans for this week? Any new books? Got some to recommend ?
This Saturday I finished “Anyone but Cade” by Penelope Bloom and I’ve been quoting this book to so many people! It has so many great lines. Penelope Bloom is amazing, it’s hard to imagine it’s my first book by her. What have I been reading?! If you want to read my thoughts on this book, head over to my review here. You can also check my Facebook or Pinterest page for more quotes from this book and many others (buttons on the right side), but let me get to the one I chose for today:
It was a difficult decision to make as I have another funny quote lined up. But the profoundness of Cade, as a character, lies exactly in this quote. In his crazy and care-free attitude, he has deep emotions that he may not be willing to let into light. In this line, he may have said the most beautiful words in the entire book. This line right here made me love him so so much.
The thing with feelings is rather true, to be honest. You can run as fast as you can, as far away as possible, they will still come back with a brutal force. The impact is painful and hard, but once you learn to deal with them, things start fitting back into place. So don’t bottle them up, face them and learn to embrace them, be good or bad. That’s what makes us creatures with soul. (I’m avoiding “humans” because my cat has feelings too 😎 ).
Bye for now!
How was your week? In my case, it was again quite productive on all angles. I did manage to crochet a good part of a blanket – still a lot to work at it but at least I see progress. Work was fine and I hope this week will be the same.
I have read a lot and even finished one audiobook (more on that a bit later in the week). But the quote I have for you today is from The Rose & The Dagger, by Renée Ahdieh. I am so addicted to this series. Renée has this way of creating magic with her writing and I feel more and more captivated with every page I turn.
“You’re better than beautiful.” Rahim took a careful breath. “You’re interesting. Never forget that.”
What made me select this line is how honest Rahim is, how he sees more than beauty when he looks at Irsa. It’s one of the best compliments!
This is not the main character and since this quote I have found many others I love. It’s hard to choose! I am struggling to finish it, as I am honestly afraid of the end and I am sure I’ll miss these characters immensely. I’m so happy I own the series!
That’s it for today. I wish you all a fantastic week and remember: find some time for a bit of reading. It does wonders!
Good Monday to you all!
How was last week? I have no words to describe mine. My brain felt like exploding with so many thoughts and ideas and planning and… not sleeping very well!
I am proposing for this week a quote from “This! By C.G. Blaine”, a book that will be released on September 27th (come visit my blog to check my review). While it may not seem as a positive quote to start with, the book is quite funny and with great characters.
“Turns out a safety net under the tightrope only matters if you fall. It does nothing to save you from slipping and hanging yourself on the wire.”
Remember to mark September 27th in your calendar and visit my blog on that day for more quotes. Until next time, Happy Reading and have a happy week!
Admitting that last week was not the best when it comes to reading or sewing/crocheting would be a major understatement/ Still, the weekend came and thing started falling back into place. Not all, but …it’s going in the right direction. Honestly, I was missing a weekend focused on myself and my closed ones, with as little work (for my job) as possible. As a consequence, I am starting a new week with a little more enthusiasm.
I managed to finish “Withering Rose” by Kaitlyn Davis on Saturday. I absolutely devoured the last 80 pages! My quote for this Monday is precisely from this book:
Joy. Just pure, unadulterated bliss. The sort I know he won’t be able to contain because he’s a beast, and that’s my favorite thing about him. He’s wild and untamed and free. He’s powerful and fierce, filled with raw, untapped energy. When he feels, he does it with everything he has. He doesn’t know when to hold back.
What I liked about it is how the author the essence of our main character. “Withering Rose” is a Beauty and the Beast retelling and it’s part of a series of retellings by the same author, being book #2 of the “Once Upon a Curse” series. One of the many great things this series has is how the stories are linked. Book 1 was a Snow White retelling and somehow Snow White’s prince is related to our princess from Beauty and the Beast. The said princess is somehow related to Ella, from Cinderella (which is book 3) and so on. I don’t want to tell you much as I will have dedicated articles about each book.
Well, this is my quote for today. I wish you all a great week. Remember to smile, read something great and forget your troubles for at list a short while. Until next time, Happy Reading!
Happy Monday! I hope your week started amazingly well and that it will go on even better! Today I am starting a new series of articles on my blog, nothing original, but special and close to the heart. With my weekley quote, I want to share with you my favorite lines, from the books I’ve read a week before. I hope you’ll enjoy them and that they will be incentives to start reading that particular story.
For this Monday, I am sharing with you one of my favorite lines from “Gathering Frost” by Kaitlyn Davis:
I’m stoic, controlled and hard.I’m not the girl who creates music. I’m the one who silences it.
I love so much how the author is able to describe our main character’s personality. She is though, she is strong and in command. There are so many amazing lines to show from this book!
Go ahead and read it, because you will love it! Let me know your thoughts on my quote and definitely tell me if you have read the story and if you have a favorite line.
Until next time, Happy Reading!
